I haven't read the first, but having the second, there isn't anything in it that I haven't been able to find easily online by searching square foot garden. Depending on how much time you want to put into research, it may or may not be worth it.

Bet you found all sorts of things you dind't need as well Tris Wink

Because Mel's book is hard copy and it is all in one place it's ideal for total beginners and change over ancient seasoned row gardeners like myself .

It's an even better bargain when you have a sieve for a memory board & unstable health like me and many others Laughing

No, not really. I found a lot of good information on several sites, including this one.
I have Mel's book on my iPad, not hard copy. So fortunately for me it's right along side all of the other information I have found. It is a nice book don't get me wrong, it has got me excited to try gardening, but it has a lot of filler and not much information for a newb, I'm left with a lot of questions.

Ask away there guys & gals here who are far more experienced in most aspects of ANSFG than I .

There are also one or two who are far more academically & physically qualified in the theory of argiculture than most .


We are a friendly bunch ( well most of the time Laughing ) and are only too happy to help / give our views & knowledge for your consideration.

Thought I would touch back here about my new book.
First off the funny!!!
The day my New book was to arrive I found the old one buried under a pile of Seed Starter Greenhouses, I know I looked there at least twice. thinking

Now about the new book.
I have read about 2 thirds of it and it is not a new edition of the ANSFG it is what is says on the cover, "an Answer book", it is more like an addendum, chock full of questions and answers that can and will take even more work out of Square Foot gardening. It is not as big a must have as ANSFG but well worth having, I have already found several pest control tricks I will be using this season. After having read most of it I do not regret the purchase.

I'm new here. So first of all, hello.

I'm trying to figure out if I should buy the new book. My book I currently have has a copyright of 1981. Thinking it might be one of the earliest ones. Found it sitting on my shelf about 6 years after buying it. I bought it and put it up and then completely forgot about it. Should I buy the new book? It seems so much has changed. Or can I figure this all out by reading the book I have and by reading the forums and the website?

I just happened to come across the website and forums after doing a search. Otherwise I'd have happily just kept reading the book I have, dug 12" in the ground, laid my plank walk ways and went at it. Very Happy

Thanks!

Hi glad you\'re here and I would recommend the All New Square Foot Gardening Book 2nd edition, it just came out. Not to be confused with the 'Answer Book' which was also just released.

On the home page go to the hover tab in the upper left hand corner and read the articles there. Good reads!

Yes! Get the All New book 2nd edition! I started a few years ago. Had one bed I made the old way. When I got the new book I was soo amazed! Now my beds are with Mel's recipe and I have awesome gardens.

Thanks! I just ordered the new book and also the answer book.

I asked a question about Sq ft needed for my needs on the General SFG talk board. But wondering if the information needed to figure that up will be in the new book. Maybe I should have waited to ask the question till after I saw what all was in the new book. Rolling Eyes Just getting anxious to get started on building boxes I guess.
